Presenting the EG-2 (Sunburst) from Traveler Guitar
The Traveler Guitar EG-2 is a full 25 ½"-scale electric guitar featuring a compact traditional double-cutaway body shape and classic 3-ply pick guard, which provide vintage looks and modern comfort to the traveling guitarist. At just 29" long, the EG-2 stows easily in airline overhead compartments and weighs less than 5 pounds. Two precision-placed single-coil pickups feed into the EG-2's built-in Pocket Rock-it headphone amplifier, which is custom-designed to produce classic clean and distortion sounds through headphones or when plugged into an amplifier. Players can also go passive into their amp of choice. The EG-2's onboard electronics include a 1/8" AUX IN jack so players can jam with an mp3 player. Additional controls include Tone & Volume knobs and a 3-way pickup selector.
The Traveler Guitar EG-2 also boasts more traditional guitar features such as an alder body, American Hard Maple neck, standard strap pins and a fully adjustable truss rod. Includes Deluxe Gig Bag, 9V battery and comes standard with D'Addario EXL-110 strings.
The EG-2 includes a standard ¼" output, headphone out and 1/8" aux-in.Enlarge
